Just in from the K-Beauty brand: the creamy moisturizer your skin didn’t know it needed.
Just because your skin can handle an acid at night, a layer of vitamin C in the morning, and a week-long bout of skipping your 3-to-10 step skin care routine, doesn’t mean your skin should have to deal with layers of active ingredients and a bit of neglect day-in and day-out. In reality, the constant gung-ho attitude towards actives just because your skin can handle them is probably damaging your skin’s barrier. (Ask anyone with sensitive skin, overdoing acids can cause sensitivity and damage.)
In the end, even the toughest of barriers should be treated often with gentle fortifying and calming ingredients. Although exfoliating acids are great and can be beneficial for anti-aging and acne efforts, they should only be used 2-3 times a week! Skin fortifying ingredients, like cica, ceramides, mugwort, and hyaluronic acid can be used daily, and work to build up the barrier, plump the skin, and repair damage, so the skin is less vulnerable to infection, inflammation, and free radical damage.
The new moisturizer from Acwell, the Licorice pH Balancing Essential Cream, is formulated for all skin types specifically to strengthen the skin barrier with moisturizing and calming ingredients while still delivering on all of the benefits of skin care acids- like tackling hyperpigmentation and brightening an uneven, dull tone.
Acwell’s latest moisturizing innovation is a silky cream that promises instant hydration on contact. With glycerin, centella asiatica (AKA cica), and mugwort, the cream delivers on its hydration and calming claims. If you have sensitive or sensitized skin, you’ll be familiar with these ingredients, however, if you don’t have the above, mugwort and cica are both K-Beauty staples that work to hydrate and build the barrier. The two also soothe with anti-inflammatory and soothing compounds, like madecassic acid, that can help with anything from windburn to over exfoliation.
The great thing about this hydrating and soothing cream is that it doesn’t just focus on moisture and dryness, it also works to address other skin concerns. It goes beyond and steps into the realm of evening out skin tone and texture. So, all you active lovers can give your skin a dose of gentle TLC while still chipping away at those skin concerns!
As with all of Acwell’s Licorice pH Balancing line, the Licorice pH Balancing Essential Cream contains licorice root extract and licorice root water, which both actively work to inhibit the production of melanin, stopping hyperpigmentation and dark spots in their tracks. In order to boost brightness, the new staple also taps into the power of classic hanbang favorite, lotus flower, and vitamin tree fruit.
This moisturizer departs from the usual when it comes to packaging. We’ve been seeing jars of hydrating goodness all over our grids as of late, but Acwell chose to depart from the norm. The Licorice pH Balancing Essential Cream is housed in a cute squeezy tube that makes it perfect for on-the-go.
The jam-packed new silky cream is a much-awaited addition to the Acwell Licorice family, which already boasts a caffeine-infused eye cream, an award-winning antioxidant focused serum, and our favorite on-the-go essence-mist, alongside a K-Beauty holy grail toner.
